Neon Nostalgia by Vishal Joshi in collaboration with Middlesbrough residents. Commissioned by Borderlands and funded by Arts Council England, Creative People and Places.
Reminiscing about their own childhood, global majority communities come together on one huge canvas to make marks using paints and chalks. Expressing themselves creatively with words, patterns and drawings to create the underpainting for Vishal Joshi to unify through his own stylised illustrations and paintings. This is a huge collaboration between over a hundred local people and one artist. Watch it come to life under ultraviolet lighting at the old Loggia at Stewart’s Park for this year’s Nightfall Festival.
Huge thanks to the participants from Creative Minds, Ubuntu, Tamil Cultural Society, Bangladeshi Community Group, Newport Community Hub and Breckon Hill Community Hub.
